Whether you are targeting business professionals or consumers, video marketing is a brilliant way of sharing a message in a way that is sure to grab attention. Emotional marketing is also incredibly important as consumers make it clear that they want a meaningful connection with brands before they part ways with their hard-earned cash. In fact, 73% of consumers say they are willing to pay more for a product or service if they love the brand.

Video marketing lets you showcase your personality, share lots of content in a short time, and ultimately gives your business a voice that can be lacking when people make digital connections. Developing a creative strategy is an integral component of successful marketing in 2022.

At Creative Marketing Ltd, we know how transformative high-quality video can be to business performance, so we have pulled together our top twenty video marketing statistics for 2022. When people scroll through their social media feeds or want to feel a connection online, video is the most engaging form of marketing content. Let us tell you why!

Video Marketing Consumer Behaviour Statistics

video marketing idea

1. There are predicted to be 48 billion digital video viewers in the world by the end of 2023.

This represents an increase of 700 million users available for marketing teams to target with strong video content. Brands should also, therefore, consider how they can make their content suitable for large audiences, as we all know the power that a viral video must elevate a brand. Many video platforms are already enabled for this with features such as subtitles and transcripts available, meaning content can be enjoyed by event viewers that it was not originally intended for. This also offers an extra way to enhance SEO with informed meta and alt-tagging data being associated with video content.

From beauty tutorials that showcase the latest brands to informative how-to videos with subtle use of a brand’s presence to inform a consumer, consumers are looking for video content more than ever so now is the time to get your presence sorted.

Number of worldwide digital viewers

2. 30.6% of consumers are searching for tutorials or how-to videos making it one of the most popular forms of video content.

The most popular forms of content were music videos (51%) and viral content (36.7%), which we think brands should pay close attention to. The most successful video content is the one that comes across as the most authentic and organic. It is, therefore, a great idea to pay attention to these trends and find ways that your company can align with what consumers are, somewhat unknowingly, looking for.

The inclusion of how-to, tutorials, product videos, and influencer videos are all important in the marketing world as they showcase consumers engaging with content that can convert them into paying customers. With 62% of people trusting influencers more than celebrities or public figures, we think that this offers a great way to enhance your brand loyalty.

Most popular video content

3. 90% of consumers use mobile video as their main form of video view content.

Thanks to the likes of TikTok, Facebook videos and Instagram reels, people are looking more to mobile social platforms to view video content. Gone are the days of static images filling feeds, as consumers now expect highly edited and sleek content to greet them.

Globally, 4.43 billion people access social networks using mobile devices, so it is no surprise that this statistic is so high. Brands need to understand that people expect access to every form of content from the trusty sidekick that lives in their pocket or desk. Mobile video content is here to stay!

4. Millennials aged between 26 – 35 make up the higher category of video viewers.

You could even say that they take it as seriously as a part-time job, with some people racking up as many as 20 hours spent watching video content. This means that brands have amazing opportunities to target the consumers that potentially have the least financial commitments.

Knowing the age of consumers that watch the most video content also gives companies a great insight into how content can be tailored to stand out. Every element, from the editing style to the tone of voice that is used throughout, can help you stand out in the mind of a consumer.

5. 66% of consumers have actively searched for video content to find out more about a brand.

Gone are the days of reading about a brand or downloading a catalogue. Consumers want the content to be informative and readily available in video form, allowing them to learn about a new product or service in a timely manner.

Knowing that consumers are using video platforms in this way allows brands to create content that is further optimised to include a stronger call to action. This also allows for budgets to be allocated more wisely, as consumers would prefer to watch an informative video instead of calling up and speaking with a customer service team member.

In a conclusion, it is obvious that all content needs to be created for both brand advocates and new consumers to ensure that it provides something for everybody’s needs.

Social Media Platforms Video Marketing Statistics

Social Media User

6. YouTube is the most viewed source of online video content and has an astonishing 2.6 billion global users.

The platform is most prevalent in India, with more than 467 million viewers. Very much seen as the leader in video content, the platform is to thank for the rise of user-generated content and consumer video engagement. In fact, more than 720,000 hours of YouTube video content are uploaded each day!

The platform’s global reach is also made achievable by accessibility features such as subtitles, which means viewers can still interact with content even if it is not in their native language.

YouTube can also be seen as the first significant influencer platform. In 2022, it is estimated that 30% of all channels belong to a content creator. Thanks to the world of food reviews, beauty tutorials and product recommendations, many people now head to the platform directly for video content that supports a buying decision.

7. 30% of marketers choose to use Facebook live as their live-streaming social media platform of choice.

Launched in 2015 to bring Facebook to the needs of the modern social media user, Facebook live allows businesses and individuals to stream via their pages to an approved audience. The feature mimics the likes of Instagram stories and YouTube live by allowing people and brands to be instantly streamed to their audiences.

Live video is a great marketing tool to include with strategy and plans as it enhances digital connectivity and helps brands obtain a voice online. Live streaming shows that a company is current and that they have something that is worth sharing. Facebook is likely chosen as it has brilliant B2B and B2C features, with the live streaming function being fully compatible with most other third-party streaming services such as Zoom for the purpose of webinars.

With more than 8.5 million broadcasts having been made on Facebook to date, it is clear that this is something every business should be considering!

8. Want to make major money through video streaming? TikTok is the place to be as the video-streaming app has generated more than $6.3 billion to date in revenue.

In September 2022, TikTok’s parent company, Douyin, reported growth for the fourth consecutive quarter to the tune of $914.4 million! This is even more impressive considering the industry of mobile spending is noticing sharp drops just like many other consumer-spend sectors.

TikTok showcases how you can bring in a strong call to action with video content as the app has become increasingly focused on in-app shopping. Many content creators now post links to shop products on their own videos, with a trend also emerging for live TikTok shopping events that people can use a one-click feature to buy products.

The enhanced use of mobile shopping, combined with superior convenience, means that TikTok video content is not a marketing strategy you want to miss out on.

9. 77% of companies use YouTube as their platform of choice to host marketing video content.

This proves that brands use the platform as the main call-to-action landing page instead of purely hosting video content on their own websites. The Google integration with YouTube means that videos have the power to be shown within search results if the metadata aligns with the SEO search for a particular keyword or trend.

Viewers love the ability to spend hours getting lost in the world of endless suggested video content. By uploading marketing content to YouTube, brands are improving their presence on the platform and the chances of relevant customers coming across their products or services.

The easy-to-use description box, option to interact in the comments and inclusion of hashtags all offer personalisation features that can further enhance the visibility of marketing video content. We think using YouTube as your video hosting platform is a brilliant idea.

10. Video content is proven to be 1200% more effective than other forms of marketing content.

This statistic speaks for itself, proving that consumers are more susceptible to being converted to video. Videos are more emotive, allowing increased amounts of information to be digested and more questions to be answered in a short time.

The reality is that consumers expect brands to be producing sleek content, so if yours is not, you will be seen as behind the times and less likely to stand out to the modern consumer.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_id=”professional” css=”.vc_custom_1666692973737{margin-top: 2% !important;margin-bottom: 2% !important;}”]

Video Marketing Professionals Statistics

Recording a video

11. An incredible 82% of internet traffic across the world is set to come from video marketing in 2022.

Based on both video streaming and live video content, this stat proves how important high-quality video marketing assets are in your plan. This also doesn’t just relate to length informational videos but also video assets that can be created from content such as gifs and shorts.

It is also not just the fact that video content sells but also how consumers use digital outlets as part of their daily life influencing this video marketing prominence.

32.8% of people say they view videos online as a way to relax and unwind. A further 26.3% use it to be entertained, and 13.3% to explore a passion or new interest. Whatever the reason for use, there is no denying that video content provides a source of entertainment that previously other media forms would have filled.

With videos offering high conversion rates, brands need to consider why consumers turn to video streaming platforms and how they can relate their products or services to this media outlet. Customer profiling certainly has taken on a whole new digital meaning in 2022!

Why do you watch videos

12. 60% of marketing teams say they use video as a tool to look relevant.

Video content is a surefire way to not only stand out amongst tech-savvy consumers but also ensure that brands look like they are busy and successful. Creating elevated video content does not have to be complex, thanks to the various apps and courses available, but it does have the power to impress consumers of all ages.

Marketing teams understand the importance of creating video content as it’s not just what will make them look good but also what their consumers will expect.

This form of marketing is relevant for B2B and B2C audiences as company culture is an important message to transmit in various settings. Whether you want to stand out amongst influencer-driven consumer markets or want your business to appeal to top talent, video content is a strong marketing tool.

13. 81% of marketing professionals plan to include video as a cornerstone in their marketing strategy over the next decade.

Video is such an essential part of marketing strategy for most marketing teams that it is being planned into strategy, not just content plans. Normally marketing teams will have ideas for campaigns or base their operations on a solid call to action. However, the trend in 2022 and beyond is that a video is a tool that can be used to lead to many other forms of conversions.
